The best man at that wedding commented, "I was very impressed with the way you conducted yourself at the wedding, very professional. The groom spoke very highly of you, as did many people at the event. Thank you for making it so much better and consistently enjoyable". Richard was then asked to officiate at that best man's wedding in Vancouver, when he became a groom, with over 1,250 people attending.
